I've always been a fan of perfume corkscrews. These corkscrews were often found alongside button hooks & nail files and were produced in several different materials and often customized. It's not uncommon to find examples engraved with a monogram or family crest. This recent acquisition features a crown atop the letter R. Could this corkscrew have belonged to royalty? Possibly. If anyone has any information on the previous owner of this piece then let me know.
I'm constantly adding new corkscrews to my collection. Any new finds as well as articles which may be of interest to corkscrew collectors will be posted here.
